Had to add my kudos to this thread. AP is my favourite Raptor. I like both his game and what I know of his life off the court. Classy, articulate, and smart both on and off the court. Great co-captain. Way to go Anthony Parker, you're appreciated.

AP is definitely under-rated in NBA or this franchise for that matter.

Yeah AP has been amazing since Bosh went down. Hopefully he can sustain this level of play for another two years at least, and we can keep him around.

<---- As you can tell from my SN, i've always had love for AP.

Just a steady, smart player. Not much to complain about at all.

he reminds a little of MJ, enough said, but too bad he's getting a little long in the tooth..........

Once again, AP steps up and plays awesome. He was lights out shooting and huge on the glass. He was doing a decent job defensively and made whoever he was guarding work for their points. We need to find a way to get him shots come crunch time though, AP barely touching the ball down the stretch is just inexcusable. He's been our best option with Bosh out.

He played great again although he did get burned on multiple offcasions by the smaller Ellis and Davis trio tonight.

He's the only swing on this team worth keeping.

Moon, Kapono and Delfino blah.

You know it's bad when I start hoping Joey gets in the game.

AP would be a great bench player for a championship contending team, with his veteran D, shot and demeaner.

but having said that, I think he could possibly be one of the least talented starting SG's in the league

had to chime in on this one.


AP is the personification of the spirit of change BC wanted to bring, and brought, to toronto. He's a professional through and through, is a weathered veteran, and a quality shooting guard who's "aging" beautifully.



AP is one really bright dude. IDK about y'all, but i can see it on the floor. rarely makes mistakes, but has an occasional slump like most players.
Any team would be better with Anthony Parker.
